Vintage French Art Deco Rug
Vintage French Art Deco Rug Description:
This circa-1930 vintage French Art Deco rug features a striking all-over geometric design that uses bold hues of purple and brown contrasted with beige to create abstract shapes for a complete look that is minimalist and emblematic of the Art Deco movement. European Art Deco owes its name to the first major exhibition of decorative arts to be held after the First World War: L'Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925. The undeniable elegance of the custom at the event has served as inspiration for interior designers the world over, delivering a dramatic change of style to furnishings in general, and early 20th century rugs and carpets in particular. Decorative arts of this period, sometimes known as the Machine Age, are characterized by a streamlined appearance.
